Students at Caistor Yarborough Academy have been making the headlines - literally.

One year nine class took part in the BBC News School Report for the very first time.

The class was divided into small teams, with each creating a report on a national event or local news.

Stories included how the town’s primary school was raising money for Comic Relief, the effects of the Doncaster landslide on transport a feature on the town’s running club and progress on the Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre.

Sports fans reported on CYA’s sports people - including Paralympian Jamie Carter, Ryan Ellrich and Caitlin Bower - and the very serious topic of whether Freddo Frogs had got smaller .... or had the consumer got bigger.

But whatever the story, everyone had a strict 4pm deadline when they had to make sure all articles were uploaded to the school’s website and linked to the BBC News School Report webpage.

Students prepared for the News Day over several weeks during their English lessons and edited the films on the day, adding news introduction and links to the final report.

The results can be viewed at www.caistoryarboroughacademy.org.uk
